This is not a photo

Taken in my Portrait Photography class, a photo of our professor/photographer Rick Recard, this was my pose, lighting and my inspirational scribbling on the board. This lighting was done with a household 60 Watt light, which was an incredible lesson. I wanted a dramatic shot that drew your eye into it. I put the shadow on the camera-forward side of his face to shake it up, and did a sort of back/side lighting so I can light the board a bit. Camera was in AWB (autowhite balance) which didnt exactly balance well for a Tungsten light, but the tone worked well with his skin tone so I went with it.
